Publishing's most important market sector is education, ie the production of materials for schools, colleges, universities, training courses and so on. The biggest publishers in the world today are educational publishers.
Education delivery is being transformed as learning resources become available in a huge variety of forms: textbooks and open educational resources, structured and flexible, digital and print, public and commercial.
The IPA monitors and influences the evolution of this vital sector in a number of ways; through our Educational Publishers Forum, through our annual international education conference, What Works? and through lobbying activities with and on behalf of our member associations.
